CandleIt has been years since I have posted on this memory page. There is not a day that goes by that I haven't thought about my precious son! I have never hurt so much in my whole life as I have since you went tio be with with the Lord. My son you are my life there is a void in my heart and life that can never be filled! They say the end times are coming...the signs and destruction in this world are begining to be happening as the chapher of Revelation says it would! I will be so happy when that day comes. I will get to see the one who died for me but I will also rejoice I will be with my baby boy for enernity!!! You were the sunshine of my life!!!!

M August 24, 2009

NOYB-You are so very right! I've thought the same for quite some time and I'm glad someone finally said so! It's funny how people get on here and post these messages, like they really knew Mike. Many of them haven't talked to him in years, and he never talked about them himself, yet they think they made some impact on his life....lol Well, ok, a couple did, and they are what drove him over the edge. Us that were around him, knew who he loved and cared about, just remember that. And I know he is in heaven watching over us.

Cyndi August 12, 2009

Hi Mike, Yes Yes I know it has been awhile since I last wrote and I am sorry. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you. Jon-Michol is getting ready to start 9th grade, yes I said 9th grade. He will do awesome I know. I am now an Certified LPN and looking for work. Cancer is in remission, my other 4 are doing well and doing their jobs of driving me batty. lol Give Ry Ry my love and I miss you both. Hugs and kiss. Till we meet again.. Love Cyndi

M August 4, 2009

NOYB- What are you doing on the guest book entry? The people that put their thoughts and love on these pages know that Mike has been gone for 7 years. They are dealing with there sorrow and grief how they see fit.Why did you bother to even look or write. People who use this are still grieving. GIVE THEM A BREAK!!!! It may take some time for some. Some people just dont get over someone they love sooo fast. I dont see this as a forum. I see all the love and sadness of a special someone we all lost. Next time... Keep your thoughts to yourself.

Mickey July 15, 2009

Mikey-Just wanted to wish you a Happy 35th Birthday. I love and miss you like crazy. Hugs and kisses- Mickey

NOYB July 15, 2009

Since this has become a public forum, I just wanted to let everyone know that Mike has not been celebrating birthdays for the last 7 years...Also, to the best of my knowledge, he is also not using the internet any longer. I do believe, however, that he can hear our thoughts and prayers. Just some food for thought ;)

StephanieAKA-Snuffnee July 15, 2009

Mickey Wallace May 8, 2009

Hi Mike- Just letting you know that Noah is getting soooooo big. Can you belive its been almost 10 years since he was born? Its almost like yesterday. He is so smart. He has passed all his state testing with 100% in all catagories. He is amazing. He asks about you once in awhile. I just tell him you are up in heaven with Audrey and one day we will all be seeing each other some day. He is learning so much about God and he loves his bible books. He will take after your mom and dad for sure. He said the other day that he wants to be a preacher. Yeah.... Our boy!!! Go figure. All is well with my family. Mel is getting married in June and everyone is really looking forward to that. We miss you. Talk to you soon. Hugs and kisses- Mickey

Suzanne R. Plott April 6, 2009

I met Michael when I was 15 he and I hit it off right away. We dated so many times that when we were a couple and people asked how long we'd been together we would say just condense it into any 1&1/2 to 2 year time span you want cause we were never really sure how many times or how long we dated. He became one of those people in my life that no matter how angry he made me I could not stay mad for long. I will always remember his beautiful blue eyes and that long dark hair he had when we met. Michael I LOVE YOU you will be some the most precious memories that I have. Thanks for loving me no matter what. "Against All Odds" Suzanne Mom & Dad: I know you were one of the few who know how I felt for Michael, I just hope you know my love for him extends to you as well. I loved all 3 of you from the moment I laid eyes on you. I pray everyday that some understanding of why he had to leave so soon comes. I will always be here no matter what you need, so plaese do NOT hesitate to ask. I know I will see him at heavens gates waiting to take me to the throne of God. Please take care and remember I will always love you. Your "BABY GIRL"

Dear Mike, I will always remember all the times we shared together, most of them were fun! Like the hockey games, class, Jubilee, etc. I wish that God did not take you so soon because you left a lot of people who love and will miss you, especially your family from Skandia(Chrissy, Avery, Me, Mom, Dad, And Grandma, and Grandpa). Even though you are gone none of us will ever forget you and the times we've shared. Until I see you again...Goodbye and I do love you. Love, Your Sis Marissa Christina and Avery, I just want to also write you a little note to tell you how very sorry I am that this had to happen. I will ALWAYS be there for both of you and I love you both Very much, and I know Mike did too. Love, Your sis, Marissa

Mom April 6, 2009

My Dearest Michael, My fondest memory of you was the second you were born, since that time there have been many others. You were & still are my everything, I have so many things I could write in here but I know you know without a doubt your mommy loved you more than life itself, I just think God you are in Heaven with our Lord and Savior if I didn't have that as a parent I know I would of felt like I failed you. I'm so glad that we didn't let pride get the better of us and we took that walk down the aisle & accepted Jesus in our heart. remember this baby boy I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be, I promise this your baby boys Noah & Hunter will be loved by me and probally just as spoiled as you were. All My Love till we meet high on that mountain. Mommy

Dad April 6, 2009

Dear Mike, I just pray that you knew in your heart how much you ment to me. Although your mom and I tried to have a baby brother or sister for you we were never able to. I guess the LORD had a different plan for us. Mike I make you a promise to always take care of your mom and to never hurt her again like I had in the past. You were so loved in this family and your mom could think that you could do no wrong. I know now more then ever how much you ment to us. Your mom and I will look out for your boys as you are nolonger here physicaly, but I know that you are in each of our thoughts and hearts. Boy you had so much going for you and in so short a few years you were here you touched so many people and their hearts . You filled those people hearts with your love and kindness. Boy you have left a lot of grieving hearts with your parting. I pray that your memories will live on in those hearts that loved you so much. Mike I love you so much it hurts each time I think of you. I know you were not my son by blood but you will always be my son no matter what anyone says. I just hope that I was a good enough of a dad for you. Mike you brought so much joy to me threw the good times and the bad. I believe you would have been a great teacher for all the kids that you could have had in your classes. Boy I really miss you and I pray that I can be strong for your mom. Oh for I miss your voice and your ways, I can hear you pick up the phone and ask to speak to your mom . I just wish this was another one of your jokes that you would say " I got you all" I wouldnt know what to do to hug you or kick your butt but I think I would hold you and never let you go. Oh I wish you were here. I LOVE YOU BOY & I WILL MISS YOU. I Will continue to witness for you because I know that there are loved ones that yoo want in heaven with us and your friends. I just pray that if there are any that read this & that are not sure of their salvation that they will call me or e-mail me so that I can tell them about our savior Jesus Christ and how they can be sure to see you again. Well boy till I see you over there dont cause to many problems for the LORD And watch out for your mom and I as we ride to glorify our LORD and your parting from us. Love Pop John 3:16 For GOD so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. I pray that my sons death does not go in vein that all that read this will accept GODS free gift of everlasting life. PS: Boy you were a great dad and I know that you would have raised your boys the same way your mom and I raised you.

Our Sincere Sympathy to All of the Family! You are in Our Thoughts and Prayers!

Stephen M. Young April 6, 2009

I would like to thank everyone for the support they provided to us during this tragedy. Your prayers and wishes have greatly aided us in managing our grief, and we are proud to have you as friends. I am deeply indebted, as I cannot begin to describe the despair I have been going through during this ordeal. Michael, my only son, was a free spirit. He was never afraid to speak out when he had something on his mind, although sometimes we would have preferred a little fear. He was very intelligent, and was the one you could count on to think outside the box. Although he was never what you would consider a model student in school, he still managed to complete his requirements and graduate one year early. Our sadness at his passing was compounded by the fact that his second son, Avery Hunter, had just joined him in this world (4/19/2002), only to have his father pass on to the next. I am very proud of my son, and love him more than I could ever describe. My greatest sadness is all of the time I wont be able to spend with him. If you have love ones that you havent talked to in a while, or told you love them, or told them how important they are to you, Id recommend taking the time as soon and frequently as possible. We dont know for whom the bell tolls, or when, and regrets about things we could have, would have, or should have done build their own very personal hell. Mike would have been 28 years old this July. Again my deepest gratitude for your prayers and support.

Barry & Kathy Simpson April 6, 2009

We are praying for God's peace and comfort. Barry & Kathy Solid Rock Riders

Dee Roppo April 6, 2009

Grandpa & Grandma Seekell April 6, 2009

Christina Marie, Through our loss of Mike we have been reminded again how precious life is. Time will help heal the pain but cant erase the memories. "Grandpa Dave" always appreciated Mike being such a good listner to his quite lengthy stories. His favorite memory, which still makes him laugh is of Mike in the coonskin hat. My favorite memories are your trips to Jackson especially the suprise visit on Christmas night , it meant so much to me !, he so loved Jackson, the food, our bulldogs & just being here. Everytime we see our beautiful grandson Avery Hunter we will again have memories & be thankful for Micheals life. My love to you & Avery, May god watch over you both. Love G pa & G ma Seekell

Micheal and I had the kind of friendship where now matter how long we were apart,when we met agan it was as if no time has past.

Christina April 6, 2009

Mike, You always thanked me for giving you the most beautiful baby boy in the world, but I never got the chance to do the same for you. If it weren't for you, there would be no Avery, and I am forever grateful. You were right when you said that he is the best thing you've ever done in your life; he's the best thing both of us ever did. I love you and miss you very much. This song is for you honey: Looking back on the memory of The dance we shared 'neath the stars alone For a moment, all the world was right How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye And now I'm glad I didn't know The way it all would end, the way it all would go Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain But I'd of had to miss the dance Holding you, I held everything For a moment, wasn't I a king But if I'd only known how the king would fall Hey, who's to say, you know, I might have chanced it all Yes, my life is better left to chance I could have missed the pain, but I'd of had to miss the dance (Garth Brooks)

Dad April 6, 2009

Hey Boy! I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday today, you must be so happy now where you are. I know you have nomore saddness in your heart. I just wish you were here so I could rap my arms around you and get my hug and kiss from you. I know that is one thing I will never forget that you were never ashamed of like most kids your age. I wish that we could have talked more about some things there seems to be so many things that go thru my mind each day that I wish we could have done together. I never got to go hunting with you but I pray that when I get home that you will have a great hunting trip planned for me. Boy you dont know how much of a hole that you have left in moms and my heart. I am trying to stay strong for your mom, but it has been so hard for me. I dont know what I can do to help take the pain from her heart, I dont care about mine anymore I just want to get your mom happy like she was. I know that she will never forget you nor I. But it has been so hard to go on without you. Our friend Hillbilly has the same birthday as you do, I wish you could have met him you would have really liked him. If it hadnt been for him calling me and praying with me I dont think I would have been this strong, He is the closest person that I have for a friend now with the exception of your mom. I just pray that you might ask the LORD to help me in my battle with saten as he tries to confuse me and to take me away from our focus on the LORD. Well boy I know that you are busy with things that you have to do for the LORD but I will write again soon. LOVE & HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALWAYS your pop P.S. I sure miss your call and your voice with saying "HEY POP"

We just got pictures of you & I together when we were in MI last when you got hurt. The pictures are dark but... Anyway thanks for watching out for us, take care of your boys. Just remember We Love You and as long as I'm living your boys will know they had a loving daddy. I sent Noah a birthday card in your memory today I don't know if he'll get it or not, I guess time will tell. Are you looking down & laughing now that Quantico is in the house? I Love You Now & Forever !!!!

Dad April 6, 2009

Hey Boy I was thinking about you again this morning and what a beautiful sunrise it was. I know that you are in charge of the clouds up there cause they sure seem like they are in a mess here lately. That's when I seen the double rainbow this morning and it wasnt even raining. I know you are watching over us, and I know that you have seen us with Mickey and Noah. I hope you understand that we love them both because they were part of your life and that all we have left of you are your boys. Mom and I will do anything we can to take care of them and pray that if Mickey wants to give Noah to us that we would raise him to know his Mom & Dad and what they have done for him. We would never not let Mick not see him because he has to know who his parents are. I have been asking the LORD that if it would be his will to let us have Noah that we would have the strengh to take care of him. I know you are laughing at me and my typing and that I have now started to go to the gym. But if I am going to be able to take care of your Mom and maybe the boys I have to get into shape as I get older. Well boy continue to watch over your Mom and I love you & miss you. Love always your Dad

Mike, How are you? Iam doing okay I guess.I still miss you so much it hurts.Your passing has left me feeling emtey at times. I know you are an Angel up in Heaven and that comforts me but, sometimes I still feel emtey.My memories are so very strong of you and the things that we shared.I still can't belive it happend it is like someone stole you away way to soon. Trying to make sense of why is always on my mind. Guilt too for not calling you for a while and not seeing you either makes me hurt.I know that you can see me but,I can't see your face,hear your voice I look only at the skies above me and know you're out there.Times that I cry to myself and just keep holding on to the memories. You are and will always stay in my heart until I get to see you again. I love Ya Stephanie

Mike, Well, not sure where to start other then to say Thanks again for giving me such a wonderful great nephew, Avery Hunter is the smartest well behaved handsome kid Ive ever seen. Christina is doing such a wonderful job raising him, he is the most spoiled kid Ive ever seen but you probally know that, all of us are doing our part in spoiling him, Christina,Lori & Ray, Marissa and all his family here in Jackson, we all love him very much !!!!. You have left some great memories and you will always be loved and missed by Christina and Avery, anyone who would ever doubt that are CRAZY!!.I only hope you can see what is going on and do what it takes to keep things under control. Thanks again for the memories. "Uncle Chad"

Hey Mike, I just thought I would write and let you know that Jon Michol has some sort of traumatic brain injury it could of happened when he was born or when I fell down the steps when I was pregnant with him..But he has damage to the frontal lobes, which is the part of the brain that controls your emotions...He is doing well, however he is having a crisis everyday.... I'm sure you have know this already however, Mickey was in town with your Noah...Suzanne and I are both praying that she will allow Mom and Dad to raise him....Well we both miss you bunches you are always there in our thoughts...It's hard to believe that you have been gone for 4 months now...But I know you are watching over all of us... And I know you are already doing this but I wouldn't be me if I didn't say this, SO please watch over Mom and Noah especially!!!!! I'll write more later...I just heard a song and thought to write you... Your always in my heart and soul...I miss you Love for eternity, Cyndi

MOM April 6, 2009

Michael, Happy Halloween My Baby Boy!! Well tonight is definely one of your nights, I hope you are having a scavenger hunt of you own tonight. I know how much you enjoyed them. I talked to Noah last night and he's going as Superman this year not what I would of picked but he's so cute he says up up & away! Not sure what Avery is going to be but I'm sure he'll be a cutie. Cindi said Adain is a elephant and Jon Michol as Dracula. Kim's family all went as the Scooby Do people. Suz and Cindi are doing well they go & check on Neldy & Ry Ry all the time and Wade's wife died and Suz stayed with Neldy and painted her fingernails for her. I'm sick and your dad is sick also. I miss you and I love you and there is still not a day that goes by that you aren't on my mind and in my heart. I ask GOD to make it not hurt so bad but so far it's not been an answered prayer yet. I know it's in his time. The motorcycle ministry is really taking off alot of people redeciating their life to the Lord and others getting saved truly some answered prayer there. Enjoy the night watch over your little ones!! All My Love, Mommie Just A Closer Walk With Thee

MOM April 6, 2009

Hey Mikee, Happy Turkey Day!!!! I'm sure missing you today. I can't help but think I should be in Michigan with you & the boys today since I'm on vacation and this is what we'd planned, just know you are in my love thoughts & prayers today along with the boys. Today is the day we are to give Thanks & I'm Thankful you are with our Lord & Saviour and in a better place but it's hard on the love ones you you left behind but the good news is we'll be together again for ever. I'm Thankful for the two beautiful Grandsons you gave us they can't take your place in my heart no one can but there's room in there for the both of them!!! Look down & see RY Ry's got his turkey hat on for you. I Love You & Miss You Mommy
